BATON ROUGE – An invasive insect species could be making itself at home in your house, and an LSU AgCenter entomologist says the unwelcome guest is the variegated Asian ladybeetle.
“It is not a native species,” LSU AgCenter entomologist Chris Carlton said. “In Louisiana, we have at least 75 species of ladybugs, and most are native.”
This particular ladybug came to Louisiana in 1988, possibly from a shipping container. “No one really knows how it got here,” he said.
